Exterity IP Video Delivers Breaking News to Thomson Reuters’ India Staff

Edinburgh/Dubai – 14 February 2018 Exterity, a leading provider of IP video and digital signage technologies, today announced that its end-to-end IP video system has been deployed by Thomson Reuters (India) to deliver live and in-house video content to displays and employees’ desktops at its numerous offices across India.

Thomson Reuters (India) has eight regional offices delivering services that enable professionals in the financial and risk, legal, tax and accounting and media markets to make crucial business decisions, all powered by the world’s most trusted news organisation.

As an international news organisation, it is essential that Thomson Reuters staff have instant access to live television from all over the world, enabling them to watch real-time, breaking news channels, as well as recorded and internal content in a convenient way.

Following the successful deployment of the Exterity IP video system at its UK headquarters in London, Thomson Reuters (India) selected a similar solution that uses its existing IP network to stream crystal-clear live TV from all over the world to a virtually unlimited number of local desktop users. This network is further extended to regional offices through the corporate WAN. The system also provides a curated content feed to open areas such as reception, cafeteria, lobby as well private offices and meeting rooms.

The IP video solution handles multiple audio and video formats delivered to screens and desktops across the regional offices. The system is managed through Exterity’s AvediaServer®, which enables administrators to centrally manage the distribution of content with appropriate user authorisations.

“India is one of the most dynamic and vibrant nations within a rapidly-growing Southern Asia market that is embracing video, digital mobility and innovative communication technologies,” said Eleuterio Fernandes, VP Sales EMEA at Exterity. “We are exceptionally pleased to have been selected by Thomson Reuters for this exciting new project that highlights the importance of delivering high quality and reliable content – but also the need for flexibility to adapt to new types of viewing devices in a high-pressure environment where news has to travel fast and freely.”
